Robert Lowell, one of America’s greatest writers, suffered throughout his life from severe bipolar illness. 

He was hospitalized twenty times yet he lived his life with courage.

 He used his work to describe, vividly and without equal, the terror of psychosis and the pain of depression. 

He also wrote all the more convincingly, about the beauty of life and the power of love.
